Fyrebyrne - I'm down with hunting him down xD I hate cosplaying stuff and not getting decent pictures~ Plus when's the next time we'll be at the same con doing costumes from the same series LOL

feistiestcrayon - Honestly the way your doing it sounds like it'd be one of the sturdier ways. You could also try Wonderflex. It's a little more expensive but it'd be sturdy. There's a girl on Facebook kamui cosplay. She uses that (or Worbla...similar stuff but some differences) and craft foam to make all her armor pieces. That's the route I'm thinking of going when I get around to her default SAO outfit. I'm actually making the one little breast plate she has in the Kobold Fight outfit I'm working on out of Worbla.

Thanks for the suggestion! Yeah, Kamui's amazing, but Worbla's, like, REALLY expensive, isn't it? And Wonderflex is pretty pricey, too. Would you say that the two are fairly simple to work with, or am I going to waste money by getting mad and throwing it out the window halfway through? I'd love to give it a shot, but I really don't want to buy it and find out that it's way above my skill level.

Looking at her breastplate tutorial video (turn on captions and annotations to get her subtitles and notes), Worbla looks pretty easy and fun to work with. If you plan out the pattern first and figure out an optimal layout, you probably won't need too large a sheet?

She seems to have transitioned to using just Worbla, if I recall from her past vids, it's easier to work with than Wonderflex.

Give it a shot!

Yay! ^^ An SAO board!

So I just started watching SAO about a week ago and got sucked into it. xD Finished Season 2 earlier today. Anyway, I was thinking of either cosplaying Ayano or Yui but I can't decide on which would be easier. Any advice?

Yui is definitely much easier to make, especially during the SAO arc; all you need is the dress, wig, and I guess white shoes (if you don't wanna walk around barefoot). But I think you should choose based on who you like best.

I want to cosplay one of the characters who doesn't get much attention or gets cosplayed - Lisbeth~ But i'm really debating if I should do her or not for Sakura-con (we're getting a bunch of SAO guest artists too!). I find her outfit cute.

Hehe ^^ now you make me REALLY want to do Liz :3~ Which I seriously am considering. If I do, I'll mostly go as her on Sunday since I have other cosplays planned for Fri & Sat. I'm also trying to get my brother to go as Kirito~

Why are all of you cool SAO cosplayers so far awayyyyyy. Seriously, I'd be at Sakuracon in a heartbeat if it wasn't on the other side of the country.
